ANNOUNCEMENT FOR EDITORS-IN-CHIEF: Ministry of Foreign Affairs to attend ForumPA 2013 (Rome EUR, Palazzo dei Congressi, 28-30 May 2013)

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be participating in the 2013 Public Administration Forum, to be held from Tuesday 28 to Thursday 30 May at the Palazzo dei Congressi in Rome’s EUR district. The ministry will have a stand where citizens and businesses will be offered information on the ministry’s main activities and answers to their requests for services.


Over the three-day period, the events scheduled to take place at the Ministry’s stand (10/A) can be found in the programme (Officine PA).


In addition to the “Officine” (workshops), which will focus especially on the foreign ministry’s technological and procedural innovations and on the Development Cooperation’s involvement in healthcare, the ministry has organized a conference at 12:00 on 30 May entitled “European Union, European citizenship, European democracy: taking stock one year away from the 2014 European elections”, which will offer an opportunity to assess one of the crucial challenges to continued European integration: ensuring European citizens’ more effective identification with their institutions by means of instruments that guarantee transparent decision making processes and democratic participation.
